Nov. 17, 2023 — The Women in IT Networking at SC (WINS) program is seeking qualified female candidates in their early- to mid-career to join the SCinet volunteer workforce for the SC24 Conference, to be held November 17-22, 2024 in Atlanta.
WINS strives to have diverse representation of organizations and applicant backgrounds in the cohort each year. Selected candidates will receive full travel support and mentoring by well-known engineering experts in the research and education community before, during and after the conference.
The Women in IT Networking at SC (WINS) program was developed in 2015 as a means for addressing the prevalent gender gap that exists in Information Technology particularly in the fields of network engineering and high performance computing.
WINS is a joint effort between the Department of Energy’s, Energy Sciences Network (ESnet), Indiana University, Santa Fe Indian School, and University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR). Funding is provided through direct funding from ESnet and support from other project contributors.
Funding is provided through direct funding from ESnet and support from other project contributors. Past funding was provided by the National Science Foundation grants (NSF grant numbers 164098, 144064, 2331094).
Each year, expert volunteers from academia, government, and industry come together to design, construct, and operate SCinet, a unique multi-terabit-per-second network built to support attendees’ revolutionary demonstrations that have become the hallmark of the SC conference. SCinet takes a year to plan, a month to build, a week to operate, and just one day to tear down.
SCinet provides an ideal “apprenticeship” opportunity for engineers and technologists looking for direct access to the most cutting-edge network hardware and software, while working side-by-side with the world’s leading network, software, and systems engineers and top network technology vendors.
